More about this item
Handcrafted by me in New Hampshire. Beautiful 8x10 Quilled Loon in Display, triple matted as shown, and custom framed under glass in a black wood frame. Other loon designs are available, as shown in the last two photos. This is one of my "WildLife Scenes" collectible series. Quilling is the art of rolling narrow strips of paper, forming the rolls into shapes and using those shapes to form delicate designs -- quilling, my way, includes adding a cut out over the quilling to produce beautiful wildlife art. The quill work I produce simulates the feathers in the duck and birds, the scales on the fish, the veins in the wildflowers, and the fur on the moose. What is Quilling? Quilling is a very old craft. Its name comes of the old practice of trimming the gold edges from books, and then winding the narrow strips of paper around feather quills, using the quill for the tool. Once rolled into circles and pinched into various shapes, the rolls are traditionally used to create flowers and designs.
